Information for health-care professionals
Whole blood donations are separated into specific cellular (red blood cells and platelets) and plasma components. Transfusing the appropriate blood component to effectively provide for the clinical needs of patients optimizes use of donated blood.
This chapter describes the manufacturing process for the most commonly prepared blood components:
In August 2017, Canadian Blood Services changed its platelet product testing procedure to improve the detection of bacterial contamination. This change enhanced the safety of Canadian Blood Services platelet products and provided the opportunity to improve inventory management by extending the platelet shelf life from five to seven days.

The 2021 AABB Virtual Annual Meeting last month was marked by two highlights for Canadian Blood Services: the inauguration of our chief scientist, Dr. Dana Devine, as AABB president, and Dr. Devine’s recognition with a prestigious AABB leadership award.
In August this year Dr. Alvin Zipursky, a Canadian physician and researcher, died at the age of 90. He was renowned for improving children’s health in Canada and around the world and made research discoveries that were central to developing a life-saving treatment for a deadly disease called rhesus hemolytic disease, also known as Rh disease. Canadian Blood Services employees with a special connection to Dr. Zipursky describe how his drive to eradicate Rh disease worldwide continues to inspire their work today.
